Just to avoid all the uninstalling and reinstalling, have you tried running your apps in Compatibility Mode? I've actually gotten everything I use to run, including the persnickety Teamspeak Overlay, by using Compatibility Mode settings. That may save you some grief.

If you do not have the installation disk you are out of luck, unless you can borrow some ones, removal of operating systems is reletively easy, to need to know which one your are currently connected with, going to the start menue and run the folowing click run, type %windir% and click ok, write down the folder that is open, do not touch that folder if you want to keep that operating system, otherwise your dead, go to microsoft website its all there for you to download and follow the directions, not to hard at all. good luck

Universal xp pro key code


I'm sorry to say, but legally no one can give you a key to install XP. We have no way of verifying that bought a legitimate copy of Windows XP Professional, or if you just downloaded a pirated copy.

Sorry for not being able to help any further than this, but I hope you understand that we CAN'T help you with this request.

Change vista to xp on acer laptop


see if there are any drivers in XP for this model to start- if there are not- you are NOT able to convert it back to XP at ALL. Check with acer's tech support to see if it is possible to get drivers or if it is possible to convert it back to xp. Good luck- I'm seeing this problem a lot at the moment and the manufacturers do not care about people that hate vista.
